Credit assessment
Your credit is calculated as 'Good', 'Fair' or 'Needs Improvement'. A good credit assessment means you should be able to qualify, within the limits of your income, for most loans. You are also much more likely to receive the best interest rates available. If your credit is fair, you will probably not have trouble qualifying for a loan, but you may not receive the best available interest rate. If your credit rating needs improvement, you may have issues that could limit your ability to qualify for many loans.
